Re: Phil Bester

Nice week for Bester I agree with you guys that it looks like he should be ready to take the step up to challengers.

Re: Phil Bester

Bester Capdeville next should be a much tougher test, though.

Re: Phil Bester

I don't see him getting past Capdeville, but who knows.

Re: Phil Bester

The only bad point about Bester playing Davis cup is that he really needs points that week and for some reason he isn't playing granny the following week. Because the cut off for us open qualies is end of july he probably now won't have enough points to get in (unless he goes on a big streak this week).

Re: Phil Bester

So Bester moves up to a career high 229 in the rankings! Unfortunately, since he is not playing Granby (or any other tournament) next week, he won't be able to defend last year's future win (27 points) and will drop down to about 260 in the rankings.

Well that stinks. I hope Bester can crack the top 200 at some point this season. It would be awesome to have 3 players in the top 200 - Dancevic, Vashy and him. And maybe for fun, PLD too. Seriously, when's the last time we had a bunch of guys in the top 200?
